PS3 sells out! Sign of it being number one behind 3DS this week?

yes
no
indictive

I took a look at what was left on the shelves at Walmart before close of business Christmas Eve.

 

360 was sold out.

 

Wii/DS/3DS sold out.

 

PS3 sold out.

 

PSV/PS2/PSP - PSV was not close to being sold out, this Walmart does not sell the other two systems anymore.

 

WiiU was not sold out either, but out of 15 we had on Thursday of last week, there were two left. I did however hear someone ask her boyfriend what a WiiU was. He said it was just a new controller that plays wii games.... As we have heard before, Nintendo has a problem with confusion. 3DS and WiiU.

 

I have a list of games that were sold out, but the paper is at work. Will update OP with it tomorrow. But most of the systems sold a ton! Even PSVita went through a quarter of the stock we had!

How did ZombiU sell?

Ongoing bet with think-man: He wins if MH4 releases in any shape or form on PSV in 2013, I win if it doesn't.

Well sounds like a normal Christmas to me!

Nintendo Network ID = itsJabby

reminds me of back in the day when confused housewives/mothers didn't get the difference between the nintendo entertainment system and the 'super' nintendo entertainment system. Sounds like they're doing ok regardless

It seems the Nintendo marketing team sucks dust this gen.

Didn't you claim the 3ds will be the big seller on black friday ;)

Kinda curious to know how much stock was available per system at your store.

not surprised about the WiiU confusion like the 3DS confusion early on.

 

 

Nintendo needs to start theird ads with: "now presenting Nintendo`s NEW console..." and the ad plays.

Thanks for the report Ryan!

Odd, at my store. PS3 and vita where both sold out followed by any accessory. Controllers and memory cards. Xbox was close till i walked around the corner and found a large stack of sky lander 4gb consoles. There where a few 3DS, only found one wii and a stack of white wii U's and one black Wii U.
